A Tax, Finance & Legal Programme Event

10 years on... are we facing a new financial and economic crisis?

With the increasing threat of a trade war with countries such as China coming from the US, the agreement between Trump and Juncker has helped to avoid such turmoil for EU countries, but not everything is settled yet and further tensions could potentially bring threats and opportunities to certain countries.

 Alongside this, Brexit remains a concern for businesses as a deal does not seem forthcoming in 2018 as planned, with experts suggesting knowledge of an agreement may come in the new year, which brings uncertainty for business. They remain optimistic a deal will be struck however, and it is important that businesses have the insight to prepare for what is to come.

ING Economist, Charlotte de Montpellier, will deliver an informative presentation outlining how political developments such as Trump’s policies and Brexit will impact business operations and opportunities in Belgium, UK and broadly in Europe.

This event is part of the Tax, Finance and Legal series of events and will provide attendees with key knowledge around the political impacts expected in the coming months, and the threats and opportunities these will bring for businesses.

Why should you attend?

  • Gain exclusive insight from a leading senior economics expert;
  • Understand how your business needs to prepare for the upcoming geopolitical impacts;
  • Network with peers and exchange ideas;
  • Contribute to the chamber's Thought Leadership agenda;
